The Government of Ontario is investing $7.25 million in University of Guelph research to help advance a competitive and sustainable agri-food sector in Ontario and around the world.

The 50 projects funded through the Ontario Agri-Food innovation Alliance—a collaboration between the University of Guelph and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA)—focus on a range of topics, from new packaging to lengthen the shelf-life of fruits and vegetables to supplements that improve cattle gut health and performance to research that looks at climate change, mental health and gender.
